LETTER: People have spoken with Trump as nominee

The party effort to silence him only reinforces the notion that the government is run from the top down.

Defends Trump

During this presidential primary, Republican voters overwhelmingly rejected a full slate of well-known politicians — a Republican A-list, if you will.

Instead, they have chosen a nonconforming nonpolitician to be their champion.

Mr. Trump would not have been my choice, but I had to concede that the people have spoken.

Since then, an effort is being made by Washington, D.C., politicians to force Trump to conform, to speak more politically correct and to perhaps read a few speeches written for him.

This rejection of their own presidential nominee only reinforces my preconceived notion that our government is being run from the top down.

Rich Lamkin,
